TelePharm, a telepharmacy and telemedicine software platform, is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of thirty companies for the Innovation Zone to showcase its innovative technology at the largest global mHealth Summit next week. TelePharm, based in Iowa City, will present its mobile health platform to healthcare providers, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
TelePharm, originally created to solve a specific problem for pharmacies by providing telepharmacy software, has broadened its vision to serve the growing need for Telemedicine in rural areas. In early 2014, TelePharm will launch a new telemedicine platform for remote delivery of healthcare services across all areas of medicine, enabling patients to receive web-based care safely and effectively in a consistent, affordable, and convenient manner.
The Venture+ Forum, featuring a keynote address from Qualcomm Life Fund Director Jack Young, will kick off the 5th Annual mHealth Summit running from December 9-11, 2013. The largest global conference and expo focused on the intersection of mobile/wireless and healthcare delivery, the Summit convenes 5,000 attendees from 60 countries across every sector – including health and technology influencers, developers, policy makers, business leaders and key stakeholders. It is the industry's leading event around the mobile health ecosystem and the future of innovation.
Regarding TelePharm’s selection to participate in the Summit, CEO Roby Miller said, “We are thrilled for TelePharm to be recognized on a national level. The team has been working hard for the past year and this affirmation of their efforts is well-deserved. The summit will help us connect to hospital executives and investors and will broaden our partnerships with other mHealth companies.”
The mHealth Summit will host several other opportunities for investors and innovators to connect, including the new Innovation Zone – a sponsored startup pavilion on the exhibit floor featuring live demos from the mobile healthcare startups. The Innovation Zone will include free consultations with legal experts and other business-building service providers, as well as several keynotes and fireside chats focused on entrepreneurship.
